I am in my 6th month recovery after my stroke. I spent 8 weeks in an NHS hospital then a further 4 weeks in a rehabilitation centre.
My stroke was L cerebellar infarct Nov 22 2021, then recurred a few days later, L vertebral artery (L VA) occlusion, likely arterial dissection from neck injury.
The pins and needles, burning, freezing sensation down my rigt side, arm, hand,leg and foot has recently got really bad, so bad i have to take medication at night to sleep.
I have tried Pregablin and Lamotrigine but they havent had any affect. I would be very interested to know what medication is being taken by other forum members and hear any news from members with similar problems.
I am desperate to try and at least get the sensations back to the level i was experiencing when i was discharged from rehab!! The numbness, burning sensation is almost preventing me from doing my daily physio routine now.
